Report to the Community
2014–18 Term of Council Update

When Council took office in 2014, a list of strategic goals and directions for the term were developed. The plan was called “Our Plan for a Better Barrie” and it strived for a Vibrant Business Environment, Responsible Spending, Inclusive Community and Well Planned Transportation. These goals have helped guide decisions and priorities over the last four years, setting Barrie up for continued success. The Community Report highlights many of the accomplishments made on each of the 2014–2018 priorities.

Hard copies of the Report to the Community are available for pickup at City facilities.
